The Pardon of Scooter Libby

July 23, 2007

Audio Archive
Did the Vice President of the United States commit a traitorous act?
Is the President of the United States covering up for the Vice President?
Should this pardon be a factor leading to articles of impeachment to remove George Bush from office?
Why do Republicans feel that lying over a consensual sex act is grounds to remove a President from office, but committing treason isn’t grounds for removing the Vice President or putting his Chief of Staff in prison?
Mark will play his exclusive interview with Ambassador Joseph Wilson on this very subject.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.

    If I were libby I would be very afraid for my life as he holds a lot of info that might really harm this regime. Dead men don’t tell tales and can’t shed light on what is really going on with the crime family in the WH!
    Sad that I no longer have any faith in moral values of the current regime!!!

    I want to see the Bush administration posing in orange jumpsuits for a photo-op underneath a big banner that says, “Mission Accomplished.”

    Nice try, j dee. Great attempt at deflection. But there are substantial differences. For one thing, Scooter Libby was covering up for this Administration’s own treachery. It would be like pardoning Benedict Arnold. Can you name anyone else in U.S. history who was pardoned/commuted for OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE? as well as for perjury and other crimes. Specifically for lying about the acts of the Vice President or Vice President? I thought not.
    What do YOU think Libby would have said about Cheney and Bush if he had been sent to jail? What do YOU think was the quid pro quo for his pardon? Can you name a single quid pro quo for a Clinton pardon? Isn’t it clear to you that Libby’s and Cheney’s silence (neither testified) was bought and paid for? Can you say the same about the Clinton pardons?
    Secondly, Congress and the vast majority of the Democrats sharply condemned the Clinton pardons of people like Libby’s client Marc Rich, which, while posing no danger to our democractic republic, were unseemly. Where is the Republican outrage?
    And finally, let’s not forget EXACTLY what Libby he did. He lied about the Vice President disclosing the identity of a secret CIA agent. Even Bush Senior considers people who do this “the most insidious of traitors.” And why was the Vice President a traitor to his country? To protect a massive Goebbels-like lie from the President to the American People to scare them into war with the non-existent threat of a nuclear attack, a war which has cost the lives of hundreds of thousands, the exile of millions, has strengthened our greatest enemies (Al Quaeda and Iran), has decimated the American military, has transferred hundreds of billions of dollars from US taxpayers to a few plutocrats who run Halliburton and the other parts of the military-industrial complex, caused tens of thousands of brave men and women to be amputees and permanently wounded, and, not least of which, led to the unnecessary deaths of 3500 of our nation’s finest, a number exceeding the deaths of 9/11 and growing.
    Somehow Clinton’s mistakes pale in comparison, dontcha think?

    Have any of you taken the time to look at who Clintong pardoned? Makes Libby look like a boy scout.
